SourceTree taking over 2GB of memory

I am running SourceTree on

mac OS X 10.7.5

And SourceTree is using 2.68 GB of memory.

I restart it and it uses only 44MB and the memory usage quickly climbs!

When I open a basic GitHub project memory climbs to ~65MB.

But when I open my main project (internally hosted Git repo) it climbs to 530MB and climbs from there

Please help!

Were the filters set up so they're displayed in SourceTree?
